I love to read. I’m always reading something. Recently I found a book that also has recipes in it. Unfortunately, I don’t like the book. Fortunately, the recipes are good. I found this recipe and have made it a few times. Meeshie loves it. I’ve brought it to work and it’s been a hit. I knew it was a winner when one of the attorneys in the office gave me a hug. I’ve never seen her hug someone before. The things people do for chocolate.
These are a rich bar, so I prefer them with a small amount of nuts in between a few layers. But, I’ll admit I don’t like chocolate as much as I love caramel. This is definitely for the chocoholic in your life. Make these and they will be putty in your hands. I did mention I got a hug, right?
The book may be a bust, but the recipes have been great. So if you see someone using their cell phone to take pictures of a recipe or two in the book section of your local Target, just keep walking. I’ll act like I don’t see you either.
- 1/2 C Butter, melted
- 1 1/2 C Oreo Cookie Crumbs
- 1 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 2 C Mini Marshmallows
- 1-14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 C White Chocolate Chips
- 2 C Cocoa Puffs
- 1 C Milk Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 C Chopped Pecans (optional)
Combine the melted butter and Oreo crumbs. Press them into a prepared 9×13 cake pan. Layer the semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallows, sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate chips, cocoa puffs and milk chocolate chips. If you are using the pecans, I added a small amount between the Oreo layer, after the sweetened condensed milk layer and on top. Once assembled, press the layers into the pan with your hands.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely before cutting. Cut them into bars.
Makes about 35 bars.
